Lake Superior Storm 005
I wanted to get a few photos from outside the break wall but the usual path to Artist Point was covered with water. I followed the beach on the east side of the harbor, crossed a small stream created from wash from the waves, climbed the rocks on the back of the point and worked my way through the trees. Several of the trees were blown down. I found a spot where a rock point was splitting the waves on both sides protecting me from the majority of the spray. That is where I was able to capture my favorite image of the day. It wasn’t dangerous to go where I did - just loud, scary and wet.
One thing that kept my camera and me dry was a jacket that I am reviewing for my niece who helped with the design. It is called the JakPak. It is a raincoat, tent, sleeping bag combination. I just flipped the little tent over me and it kept the camera from getting wet. Check it out on http://www.JakPak.com.
